Timo Baumann

Prof. Dr. Timo Baumann, Diplom-Informatiker

Professor in Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing at the School for CS and Maths at OTH Regensburg.

I research spoken language, in particular in interactive and multi-modal scenarios, such as in spoken dialogue systems. My particular interests lie in responsiveness in interaction and I have been one of the main drivers of incremental spoken dialogue systems. Beyond that, I create and use corpora of spoken language, such as the Spoken Wikipedia Corpus. I like difficult problems, which is why I work on prosody, and even prosody of post-modern poetry, and more recently multi-modal lip-synchronous dubbing. Feel free to have a look at my recent projects.
